Special thanks to all those who are joining in the Game Score Game fun today! Below is the completed game board.  Simply check your ticket(s) for your Row and Seat… this indicates your corresponding space on the board (i.e. Row G, Seat 3 is space G-3 and if the score in any quarter ends with the Broncos having a 3 or 13 or 23, etc  and the Panthers having a 0, 10, 20, etc – YOU WIN) . Good luck and enjoy the big game!


Greetings – As many of you know, for five years Generation Give has hosted a “Super Celebration” fundraiser on Super Bowl Sunday. The events have generated nearly $100,000 for local, national and worldwide causes with 100% of all donations passed on to recipients!

This year, we are sponsoring an on-line version of Super Celebration (see attached), where you and your friends can play the “Game Score Game” and win $$$ while donating to very worthy causes. The Game Score Game is similar to “football pools” except that 100% of your square purchase/donation goes to partner charities and Generation Give provides all the prize pay-outs!

For those of you that have attended Super Celebrations in the past, the event will be back next year, bigger and better than ever and with a new name – “Charity Championship Sunday®”

Super Celebration V

Orange County charities are winners at annual Super Bowl party

Mission Viejo – Four local charities were the beneficiaries of an annual Super Bowl party that was hosted by Generation Give and held at the Mission Viejo Country Club. More than 220 people attended the Super Celebration V game-viewing event which raised about $25,000 for the nonprofits.

Generation Give is based in Mission Viejo and supports children’s education, feeding the hungry and relieving the suffering from disease. Its philosophy is “Global causes – local impact.” They identify and work with organizations that make a meaningful difference in a specific community.

Other benefitting charities were South County Outreach, California Parkinson’s Group and Girls Support Network. This is the fifth year that Generation Give has held the event which featured a silent auction and music by Texas Flud. It is one of the organization’s Charity Championship Sunday events.

South County Outreach works to prevent hunger and homelessness by providing emergency food through its food pantry, a transitional housing program, workforce training in its computer learning lab, clothing from its Upscale Resale thrift store, utility and rental assistance. Last year the Irvine-based nonprofit provided more than 52,000 services helping up to 3,000 people a month. For more information, visit www.sco-oc.org.

California Parkinson’s Group was formed to offer support and collaboration among individuals and families living with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease in Orange County through dialog, education and involvement in the medical research community. The charity is based in Irvine. For more information, visit www.calparkinsons.org.

The goal of Girls Support Network is to engage, enlighten, and empower middle school girls to become the best that they can be during this transitional time in their lives.  By meeting together monthly and addressing important issues, we help build strong girls who makesmart choices and thrive during adolescence and beyond.
